Axero President and Co-founder, Tim Eisenhauer, talks with Inc. magazine about who to hire for your entrepreneurial startup.
Choosing Your Startup Team Wisely
Entrepreneurs are bombarded with issues competing for their attention during the early days of a startup venture, and prioritizing strategically can be a challenge. But even in the midst of that frenzied environment, choosing the right startup team should be at the top of your list.
It’s important to start out with a good sense of what kind of person you want to hire and the type you want to avoid, says Tim Eisenhauer, co-founder and president of Axero, a bootstrapped social software developer that has grown to 23 employees. “You need people who eat, sleep, and breathe the ideals and goals of the company. You need people who believe in your goals so much that they go above and beyond the call of duty to get things done.”
